The Lawmaker representing Oshodi/Isolo II in the Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Jude Idimogu, has called on the Federal Government to grant special status to Lagos State.

Idimogu made the call while responding to questions at his constituency’s stakeholders meeting held at Ejigbo Local Council Development Area (LCDA), Lagos.

He said that Lagos, being the nation’s former capital and the economic capital of the country required a special status to accommodate its teeming population.

In his contribution, Kehinde Bamigbetan, a former commissioner, called for the conversion of the 37 LCDAs in the state to LGAs.

Bamgbetan wondered why the conversion of the Lagos 37 LCDAs to LGAs had remained a mirage even when the All Progressives Congress (APC) was the party at the centre.

“We thought it was because the PDP was at the centre then, and Lagos as the opposition.

“But more than four years that our party, the APC, had been at the centre, the status of the LCDAs has not changed,” Bamgbetan said. (NAN)
